How to replace early ICP - with pictures

Thought you guys might like to see how to replace the early style ICP sensor. Seems to have been a hot topic here recently.

Parts required

First step, after you determine that you need to replace this sensor and/or connector, is to remove the air filter, degas jug, FICM, and the rear stud on the intake manifold.

You'll then see this - pretty much:

ICP sensor with interfering components removed
Zoomed in some

Use a long right angle pick to take loose the ICP sensor connector. Pull it up and out of the way. Use a long extension, a 1 1/16th crowfoot, and a swivel to get the sensor loose. You'll need some long, nimble fingers to fish the sensor out. This is where you are thanking me for telling you to remove the rear intake manifold stud.

Now take a look at what you got:

Oily ICP sensor
Makes for an oily harness

Install your new ICP sensor, and splice in your new pigtail connector. Trim the wires to the same length - you don't want a lot of wire back there that can contact the exhaust!

Trimming the wires

Put on what you took off, and you're done!

Now go pull the roof off a few cold ones. You deserve it.

Re: How to replace early ICP - with pictures

<span style="color: blue"> Greg ,

Awesome write up...like someone said in another post, I do believe you're going for internet technician of the year. If i was a judge, you'd have my vote, but it may be slightly biased because unless your camera distorts the picture, you've got some big ole fingers and I don't wanna see what the rest of ya looks like!

Again, great write up!

Later, </span>

Re: How to replace early ICP - with pictures

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">What was the main reason for you replacing this ICP sensor?</div></div>

The owner was complaining of an oil leak. I also noticed that the CEL was illuminated, and there was a code P2285 in memory - But the owner didn't say anything about that.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">unless your camera distorts the picture, you've got some big ole fingers and I don't wanna see what the rest of ya looks like!</div></div>

Funny story about hand size. Yesterday I was taking the head bolts out of a 6.0L (see the serpentine belt thread) and I was using my "sho-nuff" impact gun. I'm holding the handle with my right hand, index finger along the body, middle finger on the trigger, and the other two on the handle. I'm stabilizing the gun with my left hand. There happened to be a little tear in my left glove that the exhaust from my impact gun was aimed at. I hit the trigger, and my left hand would inflate. Bolt comes out, off the trigger, and my hand deflates. Repeat 19 more times.

When I looked up, the service advisor was watching me with a bewildered look on his face....

Re: How to replace early ICP - with pictures

The only 6.0s with the ICP in that location are 03's and 04's built prior to 9-29-03. After that date, the ICP is in the valve cover.

Re: How to replace early ICP - with pictures

How much time does that take Greg?

Or maybe I should ask Teamroper60 for the "I haven't done this a thousand times" estimate.

Re: How to replace early ICP - with pictures

Nice write-up. I would like to add that a major tool company has a socket that is specifically made for removing the ICP sensor.

Jack,

It took about 3 hours for the swap on mine. However if you have the proper tools already, the total time is really more like an hour or so....... Removing the parts Greg said to is fairly easy and takes about 20 minutes or so. Putting them back is the same.

The majority of the time we spent was fooling with the stupid crowsfoot... Trying to fish that thing on was impossible for us. So, we stopped, regrouped, and took an inch and a sixteenth deep well socket and cut it down to the length of the sensor. Once we did that, the actual sensor change took maybe a minute or two...

Re: How to replace early ICP - with pictures

Cool. So it sounds like deep socket, flex, and extension is needed. Did you use a 3/8 or 1/2"? Could you measure the total length of the socket after cut down?

PITA, ain't I?

Re: How to replace early ICP - with pictures

Jack,

I used a half inch deep well from Sears. I'll measure it when I get home from work.....

Re: How to replace early ICP - with pictures

Jack,

The original socket was 3 and a quarter inches long (measured on the outside). The modified socket was cut down to 2 and seven-eighths (again, measured on the outside).
